LSI Support and Services during on-campus curtailment
Following UBC guidelines for social distancing and curtailment of research activities please note the following changes to LSI services:
LSI HR, Finance, Operations, and other administrative support will be working remotely until further notice per UBC’s on-campus curtailment. If you need to contact any of our administrative staff, please email.
Grants Facilitation and Communications team will be working, full-time, remotely during the period of curtailment. Please contact Richa Anand for enquiries related to grants and Bethany Becker for communications.
In response to COVID-19, UBC curtailed on-campus research and creative scholarship activities. Following approval of the LSI’s Return to On-Campus Research (ROCR) safety plan, much of the LSI community resumed research on June 15th, while operating under clearly defined occupancy restrictions and safety protocols.
In order to resume their laboratory activity following the curtailment, individual researchers must gain approval in accordance with the LSI ROCR Guidelines. Please click here for the LSI safety plan.
